Scholastic Book Club
The best gift any parent can give a child is the love of good books and the joy and benefits of good reading. Children who read at home, or are read to, have a head start on reading success in school.
Our school is participating in Scholastic Book Clubs this year. Twice a term during the school year I will send home a Club catalogue with a different selection of books offered. You’ll find award-winning books, as well as old and new favourites. I recommend them because the books span a wide range of children’s reading levels and interests and because they are inexpensive (some books cost as little as $2).
It is easy to order. Just look over the catalogue with your child, select the books you want, mark them on the order form on the back of the catalogue, and return the order form to the school office with payment by the due date.
The books will arrive around two weeks after I send the class order to Scholastic. Owning your own books is something special! I hope that you will encourage your child to order books this year. Each order helps earn free books and teaching materials for our library, however there is never any obligation to order. I know of no better way to encourage reading than to allow children to choose the books they want to read.
The first brochures will be available from today, orders and payments are due by Tuesday 16th of February.
